Hiya Knitters!

Hello, my name is Nicole and, yes, this is yet another knitting blog. (That’s Charlie above, in her “hounds”tooth coat 🙂

I really hesitated to create my own blog after realizing that every knitter and her dog (or cat) has a blog these days, but as it turns out, I couldn’t resist.

Here’s why:

  1. I love to knit. Seriously…love it.
  2. I can knit any pattern I chose, fearlessly (the harder, the better).
  3. I want to be a knitting pattern designer, writer, and teacher.
  4. I’ve known how to knit since I was a child and have been knitting garments for 25 years.
  5. I used to teach sewing classes for adults – everything from absolute beginners to advanced tailoring.
  6. I used to design and sew custom wedding gowns, quilted wall art, home decor, Xmas decorations, and more.
  7. I am an excellent writer (and also very modest).
  8. In conclusion… I knit, I create, I teach, I write…therefore, I blog.

It’s time to insert an interesting photo in my new blog, so here’s one of a lovely shrug I knit last year called Eve’s Ribs, designed by Carol Sunday of Sunday Knits.

  Here’s some more detail:

Pretty nice, eh?  (Yup, I’m Canadian – good work spotting the accent 🙂

If you’re interested, you can find out more about Eve’s Ribs here: Sunday Knits – Eve’s Ribs  (when you see words in pretty colours on my blog, it’s a link to a cool place)

Okay, how am I doing with this blog stuff so far?

Introduction? Check!

Pretty photo? Check!

Link to another site? Check!

So far so good, let’s continue.

How about one more picture before I finish my very first post – this is the Rill Scarf, designed by Miriam L. Felton. I knit it in the fall last year and I wear it every day. Every. Day.

   Isn’t the yarn spectacular?  I bought it at the Button and Needlework Boutique.

My next post will include photos of my many (or my favorite, if the many is too many) works in progress.  Also in the next post or two, I will talk about my favorite designers, and how I plan to learn pattern design.

If you’re a Raveler, I’m NicoleKneedles there.  Please look me up and say hello.  If you’re not a Raveler – be one: Ravelry.com

There’s one of those RSS feeds up there somewhere, so you don’t miss anything.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you’ll be back!

And…Knit! It’s good for you.

Cheers, Nicole
